At the bureau’s Family Day in Washington, D.C., on Friday, a group of FBI employees and their guests wore T-shirts bearing the slogan “Comey is My Homey” to show their support for former FBI Director James Comey.
What exactly are they supporting, his mishandling of the Clinton email investigation, or the fact that he knew President Trump was not under investigation, which he admittedly told Trump three times, or the fact that he withheld the information from mainstream media which allowed the witch-hunt to continue. Or, that he leaked his notes, which are government property to the fake news which he admitted was to start an investigation by his buddy Robert Mueller.
The people in the photos could not be reached or declined to comment.
Social media postings showed that at least a dozen attendees wore matching “Comey is My Homey” T-shirts.

The quote “We choose to do good for a living” was printed on the backs of the shirts, and attributed to “Jim Comey.”
Western Journalism reports that the sentiment was likely drawn from a February 2015 speech on relations between police officers and communities of color in the United States delivered by Comey at Georgetown University.
“I believe law enforcement overwhelmingly attracts people who want to do good for a living — people who risk their lives because they want to help other people,” Comey said during his speech.
Did Comey ‘do good’ for Hillary when he reopened the investigation with less than two weeks before Election Day, or for President Trump when he refused to tell the press that Trump was not under investigation – no, he did not.
Part of the Trump administration’s rationale for firing Comey was his failure to follow the “well-established process” for handling the Hillary Clinton email investigation in light of then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s decision not to distance herself from the probe.
They can show their support all they want but the bottom line is, Comey deserved to fired.
End of story.
